Sibasi, Feature Writer based in Kampala, Uganda  Ugan▓da is recognized as the Pearl of Africa, due to its u▓niqueness in terms of riches and diverse culture. For those who have not visited this part of the world will keep on wondering why it continues to attract visitors to Kampala▓, Uganda's capital.But for those who have been to Kampala, what they can't miss mentioning is Kisingiri House along the Royal Mile stretch at Mengo, where the world's oldest torto▓ises are living.The Kisingiri House under Bu▓ganda Kingdom, one of Uganda's oldest traditional establishments, has been recognized by UNESCO on account of of the two oldest tortoises of 300 years old living here. Initially they were three tortoises but one of them passed away  in 2015. Yet, one might wonder how they arrived and managed to live▓ for so long.The three tortoises were given to Stanley Kitaka, one of the sons of a ruler in ▓Buganda Kingdom in 1945 by his friends in Seychelles while he returned home from political exile on the Seychelles Island.At the time, the tortoise were over 200 years old and have become a source of awe to those who visit the late Kasigiri's home located on the Kabaka Njagala ▓road that joins the King's Palace "Kabaka" ▓and the Kingdom's Parliament at Bulange in Kampala.Death of Brian, a giant tortoise, on February 7, 2005Brian, the giant tortoise and a nat▓ive of Seychelles, died on February 7, 2005. "We tr▓eat them like pets and when we call them, they respond. It was a sad moment to lose one of them," said Pastor Grace Kitaka, a descendant of Kisingiri. According to Pastor Kitaka, "it took about 100 men to bury the bulky reptile that was estimated to weigh ▓about one ton." A postmortem report into Brian's death from the school of Vetenary Medicine of Ma▓kerere University revealed that Briant, a male tortoise, suffered injuries on its shell▓ after it was cut by a flying iron sheet. Pastor Kitaka says that they treated Brian for four months but in vain. Apparently the remaining survivors of the giant reptiles at 300 years are Cissy and Ronnie. Cissy and Ronnie are herbivores. They feed on grass, weeds, leafy ▓greens, flowers and some fruits. Dr. Allan Mugisha, a retired Vet said "too much protein is detrimental in herbivorous species and has been associat▓ed with shell deformities and other medical problems."As different tortoise species vary greatly in th▓eir nutritional requirements, it is essential to research the dietary needs of individual tortoises.But traditionalists here think that Cissy and Ronnie are symbols of witchcraft and often keep on giving them biscuits and beef to appease divine powers.Cissy and Ronnie, unique giant tortoisesCissy and Ronnie▓, the remaining giants, are shielded from predators by a s▓hell. The top part of the shell is the carapace, the▓ underside is the plastron, and the two are conn▓ected by the bridge.The carapace is fused to both the vertebrae and ribcage and this makes C▓issy and Ronnie the giant tortoises unique among vertebrates in that the pectoral and pelvic girdles are inside the ribcage rather than outside.Cissy and Ronnie are&nbs▓p;reclusive animals. Past research pointed to a fact that Galapogos tortoises were noted to live over 150 years and the Aldabra giant tortoises respectively at 255 years, however, Cissy and ▓Ronnie the giant tortoises living in Uganda at 300 years ▓seems to have broken the record.General inf▓ormation on tortoisesWith a single exception, all tortoises are well-developed. They share unique columnar or e▓lephantine hind limbs. All tortoises are terr▓estrial. They live in diverse habitats, including deserts, arid grasslands, and scrub to wet evergree▓n forests and from sea level to mountainsides. ▓Most species, however occupy semiarid habitats.(The opinions expressed here do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Panview or )Please scan the QR Code to follow us on InstagramPlea▓se scan the QR Code to follow us on WechatThe decade-long dominance of Portugal's Cristiano▓ Ronaldo and Argentina's Lionel Messi was s▓et to face tough challenges from other cont▓enders like French sensational teenager Kylian Mba▓ppe and Croatia's key figure Luka Modric as 10 nominees for the Best FIFA Men's Player were unveile▓d on Tuesday.Ronaldo-Messi dominance in Best FIFA Players▓ faces huge challegesRonaldo-Messi dominance in▓ Best FIFA Players faces huge challeges07-25-2018 08:30 BJTPARIS, July 24 (Xinhua) -- The decade-long dominance of Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina's Lionel Messi was set to face tough challenges from other contenders like French sensational teenager Kylian Mbappe and Croatia's key figure Luka Modric as 10 nominees for the Best FIFA Men's Player were unveiled on Tuesday▓.Ronaldo and Messi combined to win all Best Player awards in the past decade since 2008, either when it▓ was named FIFA Ballon d'Or due to merger of the▓ FIFA World Player of the Year award and the Ballon d'Or, or the Best FIFA Men's Player after 2016.As the list was▓ selected by a panel of FIFA Legends for their achievements during the period July 3, 2017 to July ▓15, 2018 inclusive, however, the duo seemed to lose something significant for their national team's under-p▓ar performance at the FIFA World Cup, the biggest tournament of the year, as both exit from the round of 16 in Russia.World Cup was obviously a stage to pro▓ve themselves for Mbappe and Modric, with the former win▓ning the FIFA Young Player Award and the latter bagging ▓the Golden Ball Award of the tournament.World champion France also has Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane in ▓the list. Other contenders included World Cup Golden Boot Award winner Harry Kane, Belgian midfield duo of Kevin D▓e Bruyne and Eden Hazard, and Egypt's forward Mohame▓d Salah, who finished a glittering season with Premier L▓eague side Liverpool.France's coach Didi▓er Deschamps and his fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane, who steered Real Madrid to its thir▓d straight UEFA Champions League title last s▓eason, were nominated for the Best FIFA Men's Coach.Apart from Deschamps, head coaches of other World Cup semi-finalists, Zlatko Dalic (Croatia), Roberto M▓artinez (Belgium) and Gareth Southgate (England), we▓re also among the 11 nominees. The other na▓tional team's coach was Russia's Stanislav Cherchesov after the World Cup hosts reached the quarter-fin▓als.Other five candidates for the award were▓ Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Pep Guardiola (Manchest▓er City), Juergen Klopp (Liverpool), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) and Ernesto Valverde (Barcelona).Nomine▓es for Best FIFA Women's Coach and Player▓ were also announced on Tuesday.Winners of the four categories will be chosen by a process ▓involving stakeholders from across the worl▓d of football, including players, coaches, fans and media, with public voting to close on August 10.FIFA will announce the final lists of▓ the three nominees for each of the four categorie▓s, as well as for the FIFA Puskas Award, the FIFA Fa▓n Award and the Best FIFA Goalkeeper awa▓rd, at the start of September.The winner will be announced at the Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony▓ in London on September 24.Please scan the QR Code to follow us on InstagramPlease scan the QR Code to follow us▓ on WechatThe population of the Grey Crowned Cranes bi▓rd species has been drastically reduced over the last four decades in Uganda.
